Default opinions did I do ok.

Just bought my son his first vehicle a 2001 Ram 1500 short bed with 80K V6 automatic tranny. One owner clean carfax. Great looking truck. My mechanic has one same year same everthing and says they are great trucks and will serve me good for many years. I gave $5400 cash at the dealer with new tires. Oh ya and the dash isn't cracked must have stayed in the garage here in Texas. Any particular things I should know about this truck or look for to go wrong in the near future? thx. LR.

Sounds like you did ok since the truck is in really good shape. I would have your mechanic look it over and see if it needs anything. Since he owns one, he's the perfect man for the job.

I hear most all of the trucks end up with a cracked dash, mine is not cracked so far. Will a carpet dash cover prevent this as this truck will be outside all the time, no garage from here on at my house. LR.
